Marvel Comics has the Midas touch with morphing its properties from print to screen—both great and small. The company’s Marvel Knights Animation division announced on January 29 that it will release an animated version of its Inhumans on DVD this spring. Developed by the Eisner Award-winning team of Paul Jenkins (writer) and Jae Lee (artist), Inhumans chronicles a genetically unique race lead by Blackbolt, which lives apart from the rest of humanity in the kingdom of Attilan.
Distributed by Shout Factory, the package features a full-color graphic cover and a plastic sleeve, which “bridges the comic book to DVD concept,” Shout Factory said.
Due in stores April 23, the 132-minute program finds Blackbolt and Attilan under attack from both outsiders and within, as well by his brother, Maximus the Mad. The package also includes a bonus feature “A Look Back at the Inhumans” with Jenkins, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, and Supervising Producer Kalia Cheng. Shout Factor’s Tom Chen told LJ that its “in-house production unit worked closely with Marvel Knights Animation on producing the bonus content.” Inhumans retails for an affordable $14.97 (preorder for a discount).
